Boulding Supporters
- View Campaign As
Important Alternative
The winner of the election in
the second congressional district
is of secondary importance to
those working for Mrs. Elise
Boulding, write-in peace candidate
running against State Rep. Mar-
vin Esch (Republican) and incum-
bent Rep. Weston Vivian (Demo-
According to Edward Geffner,
Mrs. Boulding's campaign man-
ager, the campaign has given a
"small .group of voters the option
of not voting for the lesser of two
evils. The issues will still be
around after the campaign and so
will the dissatisfied voters whose
needs are not met by the two
major political parties."
The Boulding campaign, says
one of Mrs. Boulding's workers,
can be viewed as another entree
into public affairs by those people
who find that the present parties
can not or will not meet their
needs. The effect of Mrs. Bould
ing's campaign is to sensitize those
people outside the present system.
The debate last week in Ann
Arbor between the three candi-
dates, says another Boulding work-
er, would have been far different
without a peace candidate. Issues
like Viet Nam, civil liberties, and
the draft are being discussed with,
a new urgency.I
"Our job after the election is
to find those people that vote for
Mrs. Boulding, keep them togetherI
and build from there."

The wall surrounding the construction area of the new Administration Bldg. has become the site of
"fieldwork" projects for students in basic design classes 'in the school of Architecture and Design.
Several professors in A & D were each given one of the four walls for their classes to decorate
several weeks ago, and since then colorful abstract designs have replaced the political slogans
which first graced the walls.
Local Mothers Form Union
To Enlarge Welfare Benefits

For Regent
Murphy, Brown Say
Collective Bargaining
Should Be Instituted
Incumbent Regent Irene Mur-
phy, Democrat and Robert Brown,
Republican, two of the four candi-
.dates seeking two Regental seats
in the November elections, both
say the University should recog-
nize unions as bargaining agents
for its employes.
The pair gave their views in a
television program broadcast last
night by WMSB-TV, Michigan
State University's station. They
were interviewed by John Gagnon,
news editor of the Wayne Daily
Collegian, Kyle Kerbawy, editor of
the Michigan State News and
Mark R. Killingsworth, editor of
The Daily.
Referring to a present public
employe collective bargaining law,
Mrs. Murphy said the University
should "contest and comply" with
the law at the same time.
Collective Bargaining
Indicating her support for col-
lective bargaining here,,.she stress-
ed that the University has op-
posed the law in court solely as a
possible threat to its autonomy,
adding that the Regents are hesi-
tant to set up a bargaining sys-
tem of their own withot State
Labor Mediation. Board approval
since this might constitute an un-
fair labor practice.
Agreeing with Mrs. Murphy's
acceptance of unions, Brown said
that the major "point of conflict"
lies in determining how many
bargaining agents should repre-
sent University employes. He in-
dicated he favored one union to
represent all University employes.
The candidates were also asked
to what extent they felt students
should be able to participate in
decision-making processes of the
Mrs Murphy said "policies re-
main for a long time but the stu-
dents are only transient" and
therefore "should not try to en-
grave their viewpoint in the ce-
ment" but students should be able
to express their opinions in an
advisory capacity to the adminis-
tration, she added.
Brown agreed with Mrs. Mur-
phy, but specified thatn the
c se of the draft referendum, that
while "the Regents have backed
away from class 'standing,' he
thought "gradesshould be trans-
mitted" in order to aid the stu-
dent in complying with the Selec-
tive Service System.
Rising Tuition
Asked about rising tuition, Mrs.
Murphy stated that "new con-
cepts are needed to meet the new
economics of the 20th century."
She added that the state Legis-
lature should realize that, by in-
vesting a certain amount in a stu-
dent's education, they receive in-
creasing returns at the end of his
education. She cited the GI Bill
as having resulted in a twenty-
fold return in added tax reve-
nues on its initial investment in
education for armed service vet-
